In the world of amps heads, there is a clear divide between those that prefer warmth and character of tube-driven models and those that love what solid state has to offer in terms of tonal consistency and reliability. Neither choice is wrong, both just have very distinct and different benefits to offer... it completely comes down to personal preference. But if you're someone who travels from show to show, and you're looking for something rugged to take on the road with you, there's no comparison, solid state guitar amp heads are definitely the way to go.
Designed with internal transistors that are generally smaller and stronger than their tube equivalent, solid state amps also have a much longer life span, ensuring you're pretty much always ready to play with no extra parts needed. And with a tone that still rivals that of a tube amp in terms of quality, solid state have always been a popular choice among all types of musicians.
